Two’s a crowd and three’s a party, the old saying goes. eBay is taking on Amazon Prime Day and Target’s Deal Days with a Crash Sale of its own beginning July 15, promising savings of more than 50% off top brands (think: KitchenAid, LG, Apple, and Samsung) with free shipping and no membership requirements. Plus, if Amazon’s site crashes, eBay will drop even more unbelievable deals, giving this Crash Sale a serious double meaning.  

It could happen: Last Prime Day, shoppers crashed the Amazon site, and in the meantime flocked to eBay to find similar savings. (We’re sure you remember running into Amazon’s lost puppy dog page trying to buy the Instant Pot, which ultimately sold 300,000 units in 36 hours. Mind. Blown.)

But you don’t have to wait until July 15 to get your eBay on. The Crash Sale is part of a summer sale series that kicks off July 1 with savings on electronics, home, fashion, sporting goods, and more. While eBay originated as a space to bid for found and unique objects, smart shoppers know the site has truly evolved to be a place to get anything and everything, most of it listed as new (79%) and ready to buy now (89%). 

From July 1 through 7, you’ll find seven days of savings on stand mixers, cookware, robotic vacuums, camping gear, and more up to 85% off as part of its July 4th Savings Deals. 

Then, from July 8 through July 22, Hot Deals for Hot Days will feature new deals every day across tech, smart home, home appliances, and more up to 80% off, with the Crash Sale interrupting on July 15. 

We’ll be covering all of the deals in the coming days. In the meantime, we’ve rounded up some steals you can take advantage of right now.

KitchenAid Stand Mixers are the heart of a kitchen for baking enthusiasts, and a must-have for anyone who believes cookies are made best with love from scratch. Plus, they look absolutely stately when displayed on the countertop in the color of your choice — we’re feeling partial to Aqua Sky, but we’ll let you decide among the dozens of shades that match your style. If you’re looking for manufacturer refurbished models, prices start at $190 (usually $250) and are backed by a manufacturer warranty for a hassle-free experience.

You will never have to vacuum again if you let a robotic vacuum do all the work as it navigates around your furniture and under small spaces.
